Hankins & Whittington Funeral Home

Hankins & Whittington Funeral Home

At Hankins & Whittington Funeral Service, nestled in the historic heart of Dilworth, we have provided families in the Charlotte area with customizable memorial services for many years. Our services are crafted to honor your loved ones in ways that are both deeply meaningful and healing. Our rich history began in 1946 when Irvin W. Hankins and James B. Whittington took the reins of the Crouch Funeral Home. The growth of our service and the community's support led to our move in March 1963 to the current location—once St. Luke’s Lutheran Church, built in 1930. Our chapel, a cherished historic landmark within the storied Dilworth neighborhood, is renowned for being the only funeral home in Charlotte graced with its own chapel, echoing with decades of history and serenity.

I was friends with Charmel for over 15 years. She was a smart, fabulous women. Charmel was one of the few business people I was eager to trade stories with. She was an authentic and empathetic soul. Not afraid to tell me what she thought.... I laughed a lot whenever I was with her. I was sorry to hear of her passing. She will be missed. Matthew Wheelock, DVM
